Hello Foodies

The time has come to set up a newsletter again. Since I retired in 2005 I have been working almost full time on the site and have been actively working to expand and develop it. When 2006 dawned I said that this would be my year and I still believe that this is my reality.

Soul Food has been built over a ten year period and during that time it provided me with a place for me to stockpile creative stimuli. Interestingly enough, during that time the direction changed and Soul Food became a refuge to retreat to. These days it provides very real sanctuaries where an individual or group can escape from the insanity that seems to pervade all aspects of a society.

A highlight of 2005 was the creation of the Silk Road. A group of hardy travelers snapped up the opportunity to head off with le Enchanteur in search of the Amazon Queen's camp and the journey proved remarkable. It culminated with the creation of the 2005 Advent Calendar which was a joy to make.

This year, travelers have readily taken up residence at Riversleigh Manor and have enjoyed climbing the Lemurian Faraway Tree to discover the lands that are at the top of the tree. There is no doubt that the Land of Chinese New Year captured everyone's imagination and now, word has reached us that the Land of Spells and Enchantments has arrived.
